Rose Hill Elementary

October 2015 Newsletter

Dear Rose Hill families,

Thank you for making our school the best school because of the support, care and trust you give us. As we move in the school year we want to ask you to please keep giving us your support, some of the things we recommend families to do at home with their students are:

- To designate an area of your home for homework, and have study time begin at the same time each day.

- To make sure the TV and radio are off during homework time - and keep younger siblings busy so your student is not distracted.

- To equip your student's homework area with supplies like pencils, paper and dictionary.

- Have your student explain homework assignments before they begin - and encourage them to explain their completed.

- To delight in your child's academic accomplishments; showcase work on the refrigerator and celebrate as a family.

- To have a conversation with your child about what was learned at school that day - make your questions specific - "what did you like best about the book you read in class today?"

Please remember to not honk at the cars in front of the line or pushing bumper to bumper.
